excercise after hernia repair

I had inguinal double groin hernia repair one month ago. I've been doing a lot of walking since. However, I was wondering when or if I could ever get back to doing sit ups and other abdominal exercises.
Thanks

Hi there!

I would suggest avoiding abdominal exercises that increase the tension around the region of hernia repair for sometime. For groin hernia/ repair walking, swimming, pushups are considered the best exercises.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I would suggest talking with your GP as they can advise you as what exercises can and cannot be done. After I had hernia surgery Surrey I was told not to do anything that could prevent by recovery.
